I chose these photos to a trip to Alley Springs Mill that I went to while on a trip out to my mom's. It was a really cool place! The mill is open to walk through and many of the original machines are there along with a collection of other, relevant machinery. We had fun taking cool photos of these old pieces. Because of this old, worn feel, I wanted my layout to give the same vibe. I found these cool papers in that rich, dark color and I distressed the banner to give it that worn feel to match the worn machines and used the old time twine to give that extra little something.
This really was a special place. The water was truly that color, a brilliant turquoise! I loved how many old mills there are peppered throughout the state of Missouri.
